Food Robotics Market is projected to reach $2.50 Billion by 2022

Published: Tue Sep 04 2018

The food robotics market is segmented on the basis of type, payload, application, end-use industry, and region. The food robotics by type segmented as articulated, Cartesian, SCARA, parallel, cylindrical, and collaborative. The market on the basis of payload is segmented as low, medium, and heavy. The market is also segmented by application into palletizing, pick & place, packaging, repackaging and processing. The market on the basis of end-use industry includes beverages; meat, poultry, and seafood; dairy; bakery; fruits & vegetables; confectionery; and others. On the basis of region, it is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW).

The primary factor that drives the food robotics market is the increase in the number of food safety regulations in the food & beverage industry due to growing concerns regarding sanitation in the production process. Health authorities across the world are encouraging automated processes in order to minimize human contact with the food product being manufactured. Higher demand for packaged goods is expected with the growing need to package food products in order to increase their shelf life and cater to the demand for ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat products. Food robotics is being increasingly implemented in the production of processed, frozen, dried, and chilled packaged food products. These factors drive the food robotics market as these products are manufactured on a large scale across regions.

On the basis of type, the collaborative robot segment is projected to have the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. This is due to the abilities of the robot to think and learn similar to human beings. The food robotics market is likely to be driven by the collaborative segment, which is likely to grow at a rapid pace owing to the large-scale investment in R&D by manufacturers to create new robots.

The low payload segment is projected to have the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. With the increase in automation of processes in various industries, manufacturers are offering robots of different payload capacities. Low payload robots are mainly used for functions such as processing. The market segment is likely to grow at a rapid pace with the high consumption of food products in smaller packs across all regions.

The repackaging segment, by application, is projected to have the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. This is due to increased instances of food contamination, as secondary packaging provides better protection to the products and robots perform these activities efficiently. Repackaging refers to the secondary packaging of food & beverage products, which includes stretch wrapping, case packing, carton packing, and carton taping.

The meat, poultry, and seafood end-use industry is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The key factors leading to growth in this segment are increased instances of food contamination and disease proliferation owing to food contamination. Increasing instances of workplace injuries in slaughterhouses are also leading to growth of this segment.

The Asia-Pacific market is projected to have the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. The key Asia-Pacific markets are Japan, China, Republic of Korea, Indonesia, Taiwan, India, and Rest of Asia-Pacific, whose imports of robotics for their food sectors have been increasing over the last five years. The fastest-growing market for food robotics is Asia-Pacific region due to increasing consumer demand for ready-to-eat products.
